This is Us: Let’s talk about it

« back to news

If you are a fan of the hit show, “This is Us”, I am sure that you watched last week’s episode with mixed emotions. Would it be healing? Would it bring up your darkest moments?

I wanted to give everyone some time to watch the show and then have the opportunity to talk about it.

Tonight, I am going to be on Facebook Live talking about the show and I want you to join in.

Tuesday, November 28
5:00 pm Mountain Time
On the NILMDTS Facebook page here:

I hope you will join me. Here is a long list of questions I wrote out during the show. I don’t know if we will get to all of them, but take a look and make sure you join us live so we can talk!

How can medical better deliver the information about the loss?

What was your experience with the doctor and communication?
